UnBoxed 2017


The biggest Sandbox party of the year is back!


UnBoxed features great food, live entertainment and an incredible silent art auction, showcasing original commissioned pieces created by a talented network of artists from around the Twin Cities and the nation.

Monday, April 24 6:30-9:00PM

This year’s theme centers around our Fall 2017 production IN THE TREETOPS, a brand new play inspired by the life and work of New Ulm’s own Wanda Gag. Our contributing artists will be creating pieces celebrating their favorite children’s characters from books, film, television, folk tales, etc. It’s the sweet spot between nostalgia and childhood joy (that’s Matthew above, age 3 with his Pooh).

UnBoxed is our biggest fundraising event of the year, and gives us a huge boost toward providing opportunities for artists from an array of disciplines to strengthen their skills as collaborators and build new plays, telling timeless stories.

Your $20 ticket to UnBoxed includes food, beverages and an entry into our raffle for VIP seats to the opening of IN THE TREETOPS!
